We were on 7.095MHz few munutes after the news broke out. There were not much news yet coming out that time but we have a club affiliate there where the epicenter was (Padada town). They have members in air on VHF and coordinating with the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office. The club president, Yani DV9BMA is just 12km away from it and they are using 2m as of now. Some parts affected have no electricity and the hams there are on back up source of power, as per DV9BMA. Latest in that affected town was 3 confirmed dead and 4 injured persons. Many houses were damaged and affected families are yet to be confirmed. In Padada, there is no electricity now. It is a local municipality and is not a highly urbanized town.
So many aftershocks have been felt in the surrounding areas and still expected to continue as per our PhilVolcs. Classes in nearby towns are suspended for tomorrow. The strength at 6.9M (local agency) or 6.8 as per USGS was really strong and the fault line which moved was different from the previous series of earthquakes in other parts of Mindanao. This fault was predicted before that it could generate a strong movement up to 7.2M. And it has now happened sadly, when it is almost Christmas time. We will be back on air tomorrow but as per locals there, ongoing rescue operations are stopped when there are aftershocks, to ensure safety of the rescuers, too. I will give updates as soon as they come.
